Police Issues New Guidelines As Economy Opens Up

The Uganda Police has sent a stern warning to those violating Covid-19 standard operating procedures despite the night economy reopening.

The president opened the night economy including bars and night concerts officially  after almost two years. This happened as a strategy to control the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, said many tend to disregard SOPs after easing the lockdown. However, he said that it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that they keep safe.

He warned that despite the full reopening of the economy, the virus is still around and numbers of new Covid infections they are still registering.

Enanga said bars and entertainment places should have hand sanitizing points, well-ventilated facilities, and cleaning of surfaces.

He added that they should have well-trained attendants to ensure the public adheres to the SOPs.

He however noted that whereas they lifted for other sectors of the economy, the same still stands for boda boda riders.

Therefore, police will carry out operations to crack down on riders who violate the 7 pm curfew.

Meanwhile, after two long years without concerts, musicians have said they are ready to hold concerts in high gear. This means they have been planning this for a while much as we have been under lockdown.

It’s not only them who are excited about the lifting of lockdown but their fans too. Artist Gravity Omutujju has already dubbed his show Tusimbudde and the date is yet to be known.
